Re: Moorings on the Piscatiqua River?

I had wondered where on the river you kept your boat Carbon Sink. I'll have to keep that marina in mind if I ever get my boat in the water....

Chefuno, the sullivan bridge is something like 52' at low tide so you'd find yourself playing the tides, which isn't a bad thing but it does create inconvience at times. The other issue will be access. Where would you leave your taxi?

As Tim pointed out it is a long ride up river but it is pretty quiet up there which in itself is refreshing. Must be an hour ride in a sailboat to hit the mouth & you'll have to time the bridge openings. I did this type of 6 mile hike on the Merrimack River for a couple of years before moving down to Newburyport. It does suck when it's 90 degrees out.

Your in central NH, how far would it be to Portland? I'm in western NH, it takes me close to 2 hours to get to the coast or I would consider Portland.
